This cruise was so much fun. I was worried that the ship would be crowded and we'd have to wait in lines. The longest we ever waited for anything was 10 minutes. Being tendered only took a few minutes even though the line was long. The cruise director was excellent. Very funny! Always a place at the pool to sit. The staff was great, loved the food in the dining room, our room was always clean. Only thing to watch out for was that 2000 passengers were reserved by a large coporation, we couldn't get our dinner time choice because they bought out second seating and were given preference.. same with the specialty restaurants as well. Maybe next time Royal Carriben would consider having them split their dinner hours so that the rest of us could have a chance at what we'd like. We don't like feeling rushed and eating dinner so early and they wouldn't even put our name on a waiting list for second seating.

Pros: The entertainment was great!

Cons: Not having my choice of second dinner seating

Recommends Freedom of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Again, preference given to the corporation, ask when you are booking your vacation if there are any large corporations buying out most of the ship.
Ship Quality
The flowrider was great. We never felt crowded on the ship, everything was very clean and neat.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfortable, adequate room for clothing, etc.
Service and Staff
Staff was definitely doing their best. There was a line at customer service but again, they had plenty of help and the line moved quickly.
Cruise director was the best ever. Very funny and friendly. All the shows were done very well.
Children's Programs
They had a teen night at The Crypt. A very nice thing for the teens, they really liked having a club for the night to themselves. Johnny Rockets also a hit with the kids.
